Snorkel Caño Island Biological
Snorkel the clear waters of Caño Island Biological Marine Reserve, an Eden of coral and rock formations, filled with schools of vibrant tropical fish.
Only 12 nautical miles from Aguila de Osa, Caño Island is a paradise for snorkelers, scuba divers, swimmers, and sunbathers alike!
Our dive masters take snorkelers of all ages and experience levels aboard our 30-foot Island Hopper for some breathtaking adventures in these beautiful waters. Visibility is 30 – 100 feet or more year-round, and the reefs and rocks formations are teeming with exotic sea life. Caño Island is an underwater photographer’s dream and great for families.
There will be two snorkeling immersions with a break on the island to relax catch some sun, and walk the beach. After the second immersion we will head towards the hotel and stop at the beautiful San Josecito beach for an awesome picnic lunch with fruits, soft drinks, and desert. After lunch, we will head back to the hotel. For those who would like to hike back to Aguila de Osa, it’s a beautiful walk that allows for you to continue your adventure if you’d like to stop and swim in Rio Claro and continue past many deserted beaches along the way. The walk back takes a hour and half so add on any extra time that you spend swimming or relaxing and will see you back at the hotel.

“The snorkeling trip to Caño Island was terrific where we saw all kinds of colorful fish and the picnic lunch that was spread out for us (prepared by the Inn) was amazing. We were treated like royalty.”
